Solvy™ Water Soluble Backing

Gunold's Solvy™ product line provides high quality results for your embroidery.

Gunold's  Solvy
™  and Super Solvy™ work great on high-pile fabrics! The softer and bulkier the fabric, the easier stitches tend to disappear into the material resulting in unsightly embroideries. Gunold's water soluble topping is your answer.

Gunold's Ultra Solvy
™ and Fabri-Solvy™ work great as a backing when both fabric sides are visible and/or patchesfree standing lace, etc.

Main Embroidery Applications for Gunold Solvy™ Water Soluble

Solvy™ and Super Solvy™ are primarily used as described above, as a topping for pile, nap and textured fabrics, knitwear, terry cloth, or whenever highly-detailed embroideries would otherwise disappear in the material.   
Ultra Solvy™ and Fabri-Solvy™ are often used as a backing for any embroidery job where both fabric sides are visible to the end user and/or patches, free standing lace, scarves, towels, etc.  

Embroidery Hints and Tips

Tip:  When working with towels, use a SOLVY™ product on both fabric sides.  (Solvy™ or Super Solvy™ as a topping and Ultra Solvy™ or Fabri-Solvy™ as a backing).
If you don't want to wash the embroidery to remove residual Solvy™ or Super Solvy™ – wet a remnant piece of nonwoven backing and place it on the embroidery – then iron until completely dry. When you tear away the nonwoven remnant, the SOLVY™ will be removed without leaving any traces of stabilizer or backing!
